Vocab/continue peer reviews

We reviewed the definitions of this week's words and students wrote original sentences. After that, we did a little more peer-reviewing. As I was out sick yesterday, it wasn't a particularly well-organized activity, but students did get some feedback on their essays.

In our short period today we focused on the essential components and organization of a body paragraph. Some classes had time to peer-share their papers, but for most we'll continue this tomorrow.

CFA make-up/Letter voting

I reviewed the vocab words with the students today, test tomorrow! Students got into groups and evaluated the letters for the zombie vaccine, casting their votes for the top four letters in each group. We'll have a run-off tomorrow. Finally, for the last part of class, the students who scored below 70% re-tested with test corrections their CFA from a few weeks ago. 

Wednesday 2/12/2020
Vocab Test/CFA test corrections

Students took their vocab test on lesson 8, and the students who needed to re-test for their CFA did their test corrections. The rest of the class had a word search on the Great Depression they could do, or they could work on homework for other classes. IF ABSENT, YOU MUST MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO DO THE TEST CORRECTIONS FOR THE CFA. 2nd hour was able to choose the winners of the vaccine "contest" for the zombie apocalypse activity. We'll do this in the other classes on the block days tomorrow and Friday. Finally, a research activity was assigned and students began choosing their groups and topics.
